Ok, so Mr. LC decided to travel with me, so he couldn't post for me. And I am just now 1) at a computer with internet and 2) away from my mother.

The quick and dirty:
We're on for transfer!

The drawn out saga:

1) Went to my u/s this morning. Immediately saw that the triple stripe wasn't nearly as prominent as last week. We (Mr. LC and I) could see the stripe, but we were both like "why is it hazy?" I think it's fairly hilarious that Mr. LC is so good at reading uterine ultrasounds. Otherwise, it was 12.3 mm, so it didn't thicken a whole lot more.
2) My local doc took about twelve different pictures of the uterus and they said they would email them to CC.R.M.
3) I waited on pins and needles for them to analyze them and deem my uterus worthy or unworthy.
4) In the meantime, I had marked my own lab stat call and listed my cell phone so I could get the results. It was hilarious when the lab called my cell, I answered "Hello?" and the lab person goes "Hello doctor? We have the results on your patient so and so." and then proceeded to tell me my estrogen went DOWN to 84 and my P4 was o.5. WTF?? Why did my E2 go down?
5) I called my nurse back, frantically, to tell her my numbers. She still hadn't received the u/s images. She told me "we're not as concerned about the numbers as we are about the ultrasound."
6) I called my local doc back (again, frantic) and asked that they please email the images STAT.
7) Just as I was walking into the facility where my Dad is CC.R.M. calls back to say my ultrasound images look wonderful, no worries at all. And just to add some oral estrace in a very low dose (because Dr. M doesn't want my lining growing anymore) get repeat bloodwork on Monday (though that won't hold up the transfer, it's just to see how to dose me) and of course start my progesterone on Sunday.
8) And oh yeah, we'll see you on Wednesday for your transfer.


So once again, it was a roller coaster day.

And can I say, I am so grateful I came to see my Dad! e've had one of the best days today, despite all my own personal uterine drama.

And when I get home, I cannot wait to start posting some of the awesome things I have received as good luck... I will give you a hint: personalized M&Ms and a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. That's all I'm sayin'...but I can't wait to give you the detes.

Now I'm off to bed. This drama is draining.


  1. AAAH! I got palpitations for you while I was reading that!!
    LOL I love that you went "rogue" again and paged your own lab to you stat! Hilarious. (?Possibly Illegal? Oh, screw it. HIPPA Schmippa)
    I'm glad that YOU are happy that you went to see your dad. You knew it would make you feel better, and you were right.
    Wednesday? Do I need to clean my ears out? WEDNESDAY!
    Full on prayers for you, dear! Can't wait!!

  2. I'm sure the "haziness" is just the u/s machine, not your lining. I always take u/s with a grain of salt. When I got my 5 different opinions for my fibroids, I got 5 different u/s readings. It drove me crazy. I had this discussion with my BFF today about u/s, and she told me they have a 20% error margin. Not real great.

    So glad transfer is a go!

  3. Huge sighs here too!!! Wednesday??? Wow.

  4. Gooooooooooooooooo Team Baby! (Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader here)

    SO glad that everything is still a go! What a nerve wracking day for you! And Oh My Goodness, Wednesday will be here in a flash!

    I'm sure witnessing your dad have an awesome day was icing on the elation cake when all was said and done. (which reminds me, I think I'm super behind on your "other home" I go!) Can't wait to see what the others have sent!

    p.s. Forgot to tell you! When I first showed T the topper you sent, he was like, "Aw, it's perfect! Look, I'm grabbing your butt like I always do!" =)

  5. Oh, what a relief. Have a nice time with your folks! I can't wait to hear what happens next~

  6. Yay triple stripe! Yay just right sized lining! Yay transfer! I'm delighted for you, and can't wait to hear about these gifts - Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders? Hmmmmm.....

  7. Yay!! that is great news! I'm glad they are treating you on a case-by-case basis and paying more attention to the ultrasound than the levels! I am so excited for your transfer!

  8. Woohoo! I am so glad you had great news today:) I can't wait to hear about your transfer!!

  9. Yay! Yay! Yay!

  10. WOW! I just got caught up! I need to send you a little something for good luck. but in the meantime you're getting the strongest transfer vibes I can possibly muster.

  11. Yeah!!!!! I'm soooo excited the transfer is on! That would have freaked me out too that your e2 dropped, but I think all is good as long as the lining is good and when they add in more e2 with p4, your lining won't grow anymore. 12.3mm sounds perfect. Don't worry about the triple line not being super prominent. Mine wasn't as clear as it usually was during stims and it turned out fine. So holy cow, transfer in 3 days!!!!!!!!!!! Rooting you on!
